Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Mohammed Saeed al-Hakeem received a delegation representing the Christian Church and the media in Germany. His Eminence called for the communication of the truths as they are, and that the Marji’iyyah has no interests except to serve humanity and to safeguard their souls.

His Eminence received this delegation on Tuesday 27 February 2018 and spoke with them, in which they presented to him their work in Iraq and other regions, and their endeavours to report the realities as they are to the world, and what they have experienced due to that.

His Eminence, during this meeting, expressed to his guests the fatherly role of the Marji’iyyah in society in realising peace, and the great emphasis it has in preserving the lives of the men, women and children, as well as their property, whatever creed and race they have; the Marji’iyyah has no interests except to serve people and to protect them from dangers.

His Eminence called the media to accuracy and the informing of the truth, without seeing which party it will suit and which party it will not suit.

His Eminence emphasised his respect towards all those who strive towards knowing the truth and knowing the great lies, accusations and deceptions that have targeted the Shi’ahs.

Day Questions

Is it allowed for women to recite the Holy Quran loudly in the mosque in the presence of men and women?

It is better for the women to recite the Quran for the women, while non-mahram men do not hear their voice.

I have been working and I was not able to make any savings from my earning, except that in the month of Dhil-Qa’dah I saved some money and I anticipate saving some money the following months too. Will I pay my religious dues for the Islamic year (Muharram-Dhil-Hijjah) even if I only just started to save some money, or will I pay them when a year passes from obtaining the savings (i.e. next Dhil-Qa’dah)?

If the beginning of Muharram is the first day of your khums fiscal year then khums is payable at the end of Dhil-Hijjah, even if you started saving in Dhil-Qa’dah and did not save anything before that. The khums fiscal year begins when one gains any money in his life, even when he was a child. If you know that day then this is when you pay khums on any profit that remains unspent, even if you received the money days before this date. If you do not know that day exactly, then you should refer to the religious authority, i.e. the marji that you follow or his agents, to determine a day to be the start of your khums fiscal year.
